This beautiful barn conversion makes a wonderful holiday home for a couple or a family. Situated on the northern fringe of the Lake District, this lovely, cosy and welcoming property offers fresh and relaxing accommodation for four guests. With stunning views, the barn is ideal for walkers, cyclists and nature lovers exploring the Cumbrian Way, the North Pennines and the Solway Coast. The property is half a mile to the north of Caldbeck, a traditional fell village with a friendly pub, cafe and crafts centre.

Glazed barn doors lead into this charming property where you will find a cosy, fresh and inviting open-plan/lounge/diner which has been tastefully decorated in cool neutral tones. With a traditional wood burner and delightful dining area, this makes a wonderful living space, perfect for relaxing in at the end of an exhilarating day. Two bright and refreshing bedrooms can be found upstairs: one king-size and one twin. The property also features a ground-floor shower room and a first-floor bathroom. French doors lead from the lounge into the pretty garden which is an ideal spot for sitting back with a BBQ or a glass of wine in the evening and taking in the view. The barn is set within extensive fields and grounds for you to explore.

Located just south of Carlisle (13 miles), the cottage is perfect for exploring the northern parts of the Lake District. Within easy reach are several major lakes including Derwentwater (18 miles), Bassenthwaite Lake (10.5 miles), Ullswater and Thirlmere (both 19 miles). The mountain of Skiddaw hovers on the horizon (15 miles), and there are miles of spectacular walks and bike trails to follow throughout the area. Heading north, the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (14 miles) offers miles of glorious open coastline and sandy beaches.

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Adventure, memories and awe-inspiring natural beauty await you in the rugged, wild and unique Cumbrian Lake District where beautiful expanses of water merge with magical forests against a backdrop of dramatic mountains and fells.

This ancient land has been sculpted by time and nature and is the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first UK National Park to be awarded this outstanding accolade. Poets, writers and artists throughout the ages have been instinctively drawn here; William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, to name a few. The attractions and the diverse landscape will not fail to charm the young and the young at heart, whether that be thrill-seeking activities you seek, pure and cathartic inspiration or simply just some relaxation, you will find it here.

Cycling, walking, canoeing, white-water rafting, flying, parachuting and ballooning are just some of the offerings for any level of adrenalin junky. Experience the glory of nature in the wild or in a setting such as the Predator Experience where you can walk with wolves and learn about the importance of conservation. For a complete day of family, enjoy treetop capers at Go-Ape in the Grizedale Forest.

Vibrant towns and villages are there to be discovered, be it by land or water. You can step back in time and enjoy a steamboat cruise on a lake or leisurely unearth the dynamic scene of contemporary art, culture and some of the best dining in the UK by foot, bus or car.

The National Park is an area of breath-taking beauty that will leave you spoilt for choice, refuelled and inspired. So much so that you’ll want to come back time and time again.
